    Hi James,
    I have read the everyman saga ,which I loved, and now about to start book 4 of shifting tides. I was wondering when the audio book will become available? I have text to speech on my device, but it is just not the same. I love to voice actor you have , and it enhance the experience. Hopefully it is out soon πŸ™‚

    Golden Age was the first of your books that I read. Not the sort of book I would normally read, and it took a while to get into it, but after a few chapters… I was hooked. Soon followed-up with Silver Road, then Copper Chain and I have just started Iron Will. Love the series!
    I agree with Jaclyn, should be a TV Series.

    Dear Mr. Maxwell,

    Would the Evermen Saga not make for riveting viewing on Netflix? Will this ever, might this ever(men) happen?

    Hi James

    I’m wondering if there will be another series once the current one ends and if so will it take place in either of the worlds you have written about. I absolutely love your work by the way.

    I have recently read your Lore of the Evermen series and I have a question. In the series, you have the two substances, essence and elixir ,which are made from luddite during a complex refining process. Does essence represent crude oil, a.k.a petroleum, and elixir represent the money and power associated with it?

    I have just finished the Evermen saga and it was a fantastic read, with a gripping story and fantastic character’s. Cant wait to start The Shifting tides series.

    I’m a huge fan and absolutely love the way that you write, it’s magic.
    Devoured the Evermen Sagas, loved every minute! The Shifting Tides is just as amazing if not more so. How many books will be in this series? I need book 4 ASAP!
    Why hasn’t this been these been picked up for a TV series or movies?

    I am halfway through the evermen saga and I must say it is one of the finest fantasy works I have ever come across. In the last few years I have lost a lot of love for reading but this series had rejuvenated my passion to read completely. I look forward to reading and work you have put out and any more that will hopefully come out in the future. Hopefully another little taste from the evermen saga

    Hello James. I admire the patience and creativity it takes to write good fantasy novels – nicely done. I recently discovered this saga; I just finished book four, I really enjoyed the series. I work my *** off all week at an executive level job and I can’t tell you the peace I get when I am able to escape to magical realms with chivalrous, handsome heros (trust me, they are gorgeous) and battles against evil. One question… did I miss what happened to the tainted essence that seeped out the pool? Where did it go? I listen to audio books when I travel, so when traffic gets interesting I sometimes miss a piece. Or, is that one of those mysteries that may come up in some future writing?

  10. Thomas
    Thomas February 23, 2017 at 12:21 am .

    Well, what a fantastic saga! I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed reading every moment of the books and it’s a shame that it’s over (perhaps there could be more – I’d love to find out what happened during the dawn of the Evermen or the future of Merralya after the defeat of Sentar?).

    Every aspect of the saga was brilliantly thought out and executed, resulting in a fantastically detailed world whereby I can visualise every part. I need to get myself a poster of the world map on my wall.

    I even have some music playing along in my head which fits the mood perfectly; I’d love to see this as a film/TV show one day.

    On to the Shifting Tides series next, cannot wait!

    Keep up the great work and I hope there’s plenty more great books to come!

    This series reminds me a lot of Sumerian mythology. Was that deliberate? The Sumerian King list with its fantastically long reign lengths = the Evermen, etc.

    It’s also interesting that evidence of a Sumerian presence has been found in America, dating to the Ur III period. Inspiration for the continent across the sea, perhaps?

    Anyway, it does look like you’ve more or less written yourself into a corner since the Lord of the Night’s revenant army would quickly decay if they stay in warmer lands for too long — so he’d be forced to take them back north and somehow construct ships big enough to cross the ocean, in lands with climes not terribly suited to ship construction. Plus, likely without the knowhow of the Emirald in ship construction, that might prove doubly difficult.

    Wouldn’t it make more sense for Miro and the Commodore to head back to the continent to face the Lord of the Night, before the armies of the Empire lose their edge after going too long w/o a major battle?

    What do you think?

    I had stopped reading for a while, but decided to try the Golden Age and I couldn’t put the book down! Silver Road continued my journey with your story and characters. Thank you for creating such a wonderful experience for me to follow with you. I can’t wait for the next book in the series!

    5 out of 5 stars. I Just finished all four books of your Everyman series in less than two weeks. Enchantress was sitting in my Kindle Unlimited queue for a long time, but once I started reading it, I had o keppgoing with the series and ended up buying them to read again. I’m not usually much of an audiobook fan either but I was wishing for traffic jams to listen longer on my daily commute. The narrator also did a fantastic job of bringing your characters to life. What a captivating series and I loved the surprise twist at the end. I hope that you come back to this series at some point. I would love to hear more about Ella and Miro and all of their friends to see how their life is after the end of this series. Is there any chance of a movie series coming out?

    I’m looking forward to reading your other series too and will be starting it soon.

    The first war sounds great. I’d like to see something about just Killian and Ella, and what they learn from Evrin’s books. I’ve been a devourer of fantasy novels since 1991, I was 12, recovering from a brain tumor ,unable to do much else. Your Evermen saga is one of my favorites. I compare with the likes of Terry Brooks and Robert Jordan, which means that I hold it in the highest esteem.

    Tolkien will always be the master of course.

    Thank you for such a wonderful saga. I am again in a position where reading is the place I spend most of my as I wait for a liver transplant.

    Just finished the Saga.

    I really enjoyed them and got through the books really quickly.

    Its a great world you have created and there is so much scope for you to keep going with it.

    An Everman Origans story?
    A world pre Evermen?
    Explore the “hidden” continent and some of the politics you touched on there?
    So many sotorys waiting to be told.

    Hi James! I’m almost finished with book 1 of evermen saga and I love it! I regretfully admit I was thinking about quitting after the first few chapters because I thought it was going slow. My apologies, maybe I’m getting cranky in my old age. Now I can’t put this book down. The world, the story, the characters, the magic system, the politics, I find it all fascinating, very well put together and thoroughly entertaining. I like the map because it helps me follow them along (they desperately need Uber). You should be ashamed of yourself for taking away so much of my time but I can’t help myself. Now I have to buy all the other books! I was in the middle of the Shannara series and you jumped the line somehow πŸ™‚ Keep up the good work and God bless you.

    Do you accept prerelease readers to provide a review for your books? I have just finished the 3rd book of the Evermen series, read The Golden Age and saw that you have The Silver Road, book two of the Shifting Tides series coming out in November 2016. I am a registered reviewer on Amazon, written several reviews and am inquiring if you receive the above-mentioned position. I thoroughly enjoy your style and creativity and would love to provide you with an honest, heart felt review of The Silver Road. Please see my contact information below and I hope to hear from you regarding this matter.

    The way you wrote these novels had me laughing, crying, and rooting for the good guys! I never guessed what came next which is really amazing since most books these days always start and finish the same. I really hope you continue the Everman series! It has definitely been the BEST series I’ve read in a long time! I hope to see more soon!

    I have just read the first of the evermen saga. Your writing style and detail is absolutely breathtaking. I start the second book tomorrow and cannot wait. Your depth of detail draws me into the story. I only wish that I could here the singing blades in real life. They were so beautifully detailed in your writing that I was expecting to hear singing in my head. Thank you for sharing your amazing talent with the world.

    Yes this map has come in very handy indeed. I finished the series a couple of weeks after writing this, and I came to this page often to get my bearings. Have you done one with the whole world? That would be great to see as well.

    Listening to “The Hidden Relic” Book 2 in the series now, Glad I finally got into the series. I had Book 1 for awhile on my kindle and just added it to my audible and listened to it on my Echo, Love the series so far. The one draw back on Audible is no maps, so I am glad I found this when i looked for a map of the world online. Thanks

    I have read all of your books many times over now and they are one of my all time favourite series! Please bring out more to the series, they are amazing! I’ve never became so engrossed in a book, reading for hours on end! I’ve fallen in love with all of the characters! I’m a huge fan and it would be amazing if the books were made into films aswell! All the best for the future.

    Dear James,
    I absolutely love the Everman Saga, it is unputdownable! πŸ™‚ the story is so compelling, the characters unforgettable. I live in London too and thanks to my daily commute I read about 2-3 books a week, so I have definitely read a lot, but his story is by far my favourite. I missed my stop on the tube so many times as I was deep in the world of Merralya with Ella and Miro, I now lost count. Thank you for creating such a wonderful world for us readers and PLEASE, PLEASE work on the film or series version! And in the meantime if you see a girl around town bumping into strangers as she cant keep her nose out of her kindle, that is me, re-reading your story. πŸ™‚ All the best!

    Picked these up on Amazon not knowing what to expect and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long.

    Hooked from start to finish and I’m definitely going to miss visiting The Tingaran Empire.

    Would love for you to revisit one day – definitely a few twists and paths to follow.

    Thanks again, superb series.

    Hi James,
    Just finished your 4 books, superb from start to finish. You have a real talent, you seem to fuse the ability to portray locations of a Wilbur Smith with the storytelling of David Gemmell.
    Seeing as a new book isn’t available now, what would you recommend to keep me busy till your next publication?

    I am in love with your novels! I have reread them several times and persuaded my family and friends to read them too. I particularly love that on one hand there is simplicity in that you’ve chosen a handful of characters to focus on but at the same time there is such complexity in the detailing of the world you have created. You’ve painted such a vivid picture of this world and the different houses and lore and so on. All the characters are real and brought to life. I think this could make an incredible TV series like Game of Thrones one day.

    Looking forward to your future work!

    I agree with Bharathi!!! I just finished the Saga. I am so sad it is over. Please make a 5th book!!! I really want to see Ella and Killian’s children. It would be so cool also to see Tomas get older, see Rogan reunite with Ella, discover what other secrets of lore Ella can find. I want to know their futures!!! It would be really cool to see the other Evermen try to come back at some point!!! Sorry for all the exclamation points, I am just so in love with the saga. To find books that I can get into this much is so wonderful. Reading the last book was very bittersweet. I think I might try and put together images of people I think could look like the characters.

    Seriously, these are great. I hope to read more of your books! Amazing work!

My book recommendations have begun in earnest!

    Amazing series. So completely out of the realm of what I normally read but “wow”. This story captivates you to the point of not accomplishing anything useful in a day because you have to keep going back to continue reading. There are very few books that I think should be turned into movies but this series would be incredible.

    I purchased Enchantress January 13, 2015 and just finished the fourth and final book to the series last night. Your Evermen books are amazing! Once I read Enchantress I was hooked. My imagination soared with all the details of landscape, characters and battle scenes. You are truly a genius. When will we see more books from you? I can’t wait to read more of your work.

    I didn’t think it would get any better after reading George R R Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series, but it has! You have that Tolkien-esque knack of picking exactly the right word for every occasion e.g. “seditious” to describe Bastian. It almost reads itself and now I’m on Book 4, it actually does with the audio book! Many congrats James, I’m a middle-aged bloke and it’s just as good for me as it is for the younger readers. My only complaint is that I’m missing sleep and ignoring my family because I’m devouring it too fast!

  60. Anne
    Anne December 18, 2014 at 4:02 pm .

    James, what four great books. Just loved them. Read the four all one after another as I was having sleepless nights thinking about the characters and the paths they had to take.

    I agree with Bharathi these would make great movies easily to compete with HP, TLOR and the Hobbit. With a uniqueness that people would welcome. I really hope it would happen. Although screening these books will never equal the books, but it would be really great to see how the big machine of film making would make of all the lore machines and weapons.
    Really looking forward to whatever comes in your next book. Can you tell us when that might be?

Ella rocks but she had me frustrated regarding Killan. Shani is amazing. Dain and Rogan are legendary and Miro….oh Miro. More please. I love this world you have built, and I hope this is not the last we will see of it.

I never felt I could read such fantasy books especially the ones like Harry Potter, LOTR, the likes, but your books are so full of mystery and enchantment, I am unable to put them down or stop thinking/dream about them. Please, please, please, you should convert them into movies. I want to see Rogan Jarvis, the desert Prince, Ella, Miro, Crystal palace, stone water, the rune bridge………….everything
